I know several of us collect other vintage toys as well as VAM so I thought I'd post some pics of a new purchase. Found this randomly looking on ebay.

Marx 'Chinook' Helicopter.
Marx Helicopter 83404935-2625648780823846-2760188538392674304-n

I had one as a kid and used to use it with my 1/32 scale Airfix troops.

Marx Helicopter 82820743-2625648950823829-1234828760029593600-n

I don't actually remember getting the helicopter as a kid and the box art on this ebay example is unfamiliar to me so I think I got my childhood one as a hand-me-down from somewhere.

I'm really pleased with this example as it is in great working condition and has a nice box. A real blast from the past!

Pic with Joe for scale.

How cool is that!!

Never seen one of those before.

I had a few Airfix vehicles in 1/72 scale but never had anything in 1/32. As you say, a fantastic example of one, looks in near mint condition  - even the perspex windscreen is nice and clear.

Great find cheers cheers
